arket research shows that 75% of businesses have either partially or extensively deployed cloud encryption, with 43% implementing an encryption strategy consistently throughout the company. With so much data now being added to cloud storage, it is imperative that businesses safeguard this data as best as possible, with encryption helping to prevent hackers from reading it, even if they manage to access it.
Even if adding data to the cloud, though, businesses should ensure that they have at least one copy stored on a physical server so that, if a disaster occurs, the data won’t be lost irrevocably. Also, cloud encryption ensures that email attachments are encrypted automatically and emails with sensitive personal information won’t send. This helps massively with reducing the likelihood of sensitive data being leaked unwittingly.
